Writers' Trust Gala

 November 25, 2015.

The Writers' Trust Gala, held at The Ritz-Carlton Toronto, brings together prominent figures from the business and literary communities for a true celebration of Canadian writers and writing. 

Feauturing an acclaimed writer at every table, this year's guests included John Irving, Miriam Toews, Margaret Trudeau, Lawrence Hill, and Rosemary Sullivan. Together we raised over $225,000 for Canadian literature. We are most grateful. We hope you will join us next year, when we will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Writers’ Trust of Canada. 

Host: Steve Patterson
Chairs:
Bonnie Brownlee and William Fox

Committee: Swith Bell, Martha Durdin, Rudyard Griffiths, Sharon Haward-Laird, Peter Kahnert, Jennifer Lambert, Marla Lehberg, Mary Osborne, Neve Peric, Patti Thorlakson, Luc Vanneste
